Overview

​​​​Seventh and eighth grade is an exciting and challenging time for many students. Entering adolescence, most students are establishing their independence while still needing guidance, mentorship, and support from educators along with their parents, guardians, and caretakers. Establishing and fostering a caring, respectful, affirmatively inclusive, and compassionate classroom and school climate with integrated resource and referral networks sets the foundation for successful implementation of standards-based health education​ instruction.​​
